Wall hanging metal sculpture in cast bronze. Traditional lost wax investment casting technique. Gracefully articulated filigree line work references an abstract silhouette symbol. This work of fine art tells an interesting story of the Georgian era and the French Revolution as a satire for the class divide between the privileged rich and unfortunate poor of the modern day. The renowned opulence of the French monarchy reflects the decadence and luxury of modern oligarchs. Created by New Orleans artist Karina Harper for the French Revolution collection. The fleur de lis was used as an icon of the traditional coat of arms of the French aristocracy up until it’s dissolution during the Reign of Terror.
Karina “Kitten” Harper is a mixed media fine artist that specializes in casting bronze filigree. Through abstract object symbology she references forms, shapes and words that are already familiar and reinvents them to ask new questions about what they mean in modern day society.
